How are Playa del Carmen condo sales and the Mayakoba Golf Classic, PGA Tour event, related? Basically, both, in a way, present a real attraction for the other.
For those interested in buying a condo in a resort setting at the north end of Playa del Carmen enjoy the distinct benefit of living right next door to El Camaleon, the golf course which hosts the PGA event, and is central to Playa del Carmen's title as “Latin America's golf capital. " There is also another professional golf course within a 5 minute drive, and a new Nick Price course, with an accompanying condo development, in the works. Within about 30 minutes there are 6 other golf courses, plus 3 or 4 in Cancun's famous Hotel Zone, about 1 hour away.
On the other hand, for the players participating in this years event, the beautiful beaches, excellent restaurants, vibrant nightlife and quaint, European-like atmosphere of Playa del Carmen and the surrounding area known as the “Riviera Maya" have been some of the major lures to participate, second only to the quality of the golf course.
Americans, Canadians, Europeans and others who have invested in Playa del Carmen condo sales in a resort-like setting have experienced all of this and more as a regular part of their vacationing lifestyle. The excellent reputation of the lifestyle the area offers has become strong enough that word has spread through circles of professional golfers, and many are becoming interested in attending the event.
"The best promotion of the tournament is between the players, " says Larson Segerdahl, tournament director. “Many who have been here want to return, and many who have not participated have been showing interest in attending. "
El Camaleon is considered an attractive course for players, spectators and sponsors, and will be presenting the Fifth Annual Mayakoba Golf Classic 2011, the only PGA Tour event in Mexico. The course will host 132 players, among which there are winners of major tournaments such as John Daly, Lee Janzen, Shaun Michael and Tom Lehman, who already confirmed their attendance.
Other players who will be in Playa del Carmen between February23 and 27 include: Jesper Parnevik, Chad Campbell, Chris di Marco and Rory Sabbatini. The coordinators emphasized the participation of Argentina's Andres Romero.
The first Mayakoba Golf Classic event took place in February 2007 and since then has enjoyed continuity on this same course.
As golf continues to be a major attraction in Playa del Carmen for condo buyers, Playa del Carmen is growing as a major attraction for golf players. Playa del Carmen condo sales are set to benefit from both sides of the picture.
